Lauren Jamison sets up her case against feminism by acknowledging the good things about feminism: more women in the workplace, female CEOs, yada yada. She then goes onto accuse feminism of ruining dating:

Feminism has grown and has been applauded by women everywhere, but when it comes to love and the act of dating is it possible that feminism has had an adverse effect on the age old game?

Men are no longer paying offering to shell out for both dinner and a movie, so something must be wrong, right? And since feminism has taught women to see men as pigs, it seems almost logical to blame the women's movement for the recent loss of romance. But before we convict feminism for murdering romance, we want you to consider a few other suspects.

Let's focus not just on romance, but on the other -omances that have recently been murdered. Who killed bromance, for example? I say hot chicks killed bromance. Who killed fromance? Ben Wallace, acting alone. Who killed jlomance? Maid in Manhattan killed JLomance. How about snowmance? I say the month of February usually kills snowmance for me.
